The Effect of Training on Value-Sharing on Semantic Differential Scores.
Langmeyer, David B.; Starkey, Kathryn
Earlier training attempts to prevent drug abuse were predicated on a cognitive-behavior link. Increased information generally resulted in more positive attitudes toward drug use. An educational alternative which may intervene in drug taking behavior is Value-Sharing. Parents in a Value-Sharing course were administered a form of the Semantic Differential Scale with targets of "self as parent" and "ideal parent". A reduction in the difference between real and ideal ratings resulted from the pre-post tests. One hundred school personnel will be measured with a "self as teacher" and "ideal teacher" scale. A similar reduction is anticipated. (Author)
